  1. How to update to nightly versions/kernels with mainline? I have the latest Armbian (5.25) installed with mainline kernel (4.9.4). uname says: Linux orangepipc 4.9.4-sun8i #14 SMP Thu Feb 2 02:03:26 CET 2017 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux There are nightlys with 4.10 kernel. How do I upgrade to them? If I try to install the kernel manually, root@orangepipc:~# apt-get -s install linux-image-dev-sun8i Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done linux-image-dev-sun8i is already the newest version (5.25). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove
  2. Thanks! So "x.y." means "future" -- now I know for the future I wish you guys success and wait for the week, it's not that urgent.
  3. On see am Armbian 5.25 with many improvements But on files seem to be 5.24 and older, even the nightly versions. I am interested in the sunxi mainline version with kernel 4.9. Thanks in advance! Christian
  4. As without serial console, I tried to integrate load mmc ... into the Armbian boot script. Didn't work also with ext4load or putting it in separate lines but ... with the information of your posting how to access partitions I just copied the contents of the Openelec boot script into the Armbian one: setenv bootm_boot_mode sec setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 boot=/dev/mmcblk0p3 disk=/dev/mmcblk0p2 consoleblank=0 fatload mmc 0:3 0x43000000 script.bin fatload mmc 0:3 0x42000000 KERNEL bootm 0x42000000 And this did work :-) :-) :-) Thanks for providing the "hint"! I had this nea
  5. I use the u-boot of "your" Openelec. I created a new ext4 partition, copied Armbian there and the boot files additionally to the root folder of the FAT partion. Before I tried to add Openelec to Armbian by creating a new partition for /storage and modified 'boot.scr' as described in In that case I use the Armbian u-boot, but then Armbian started, but Openelec did not. Maybe it's because "your" 'boot.scr' contains absolute addresses, which are not compatible with Armbian's u-
  6. I tried to add the the Openelec files to the ext4 partition, but this didn't work either. I had the following 'boot.scr': gpio set PL10 gpio set PG11 setenv machid 1029 setenv bootm_boot_mode nonsec if ext4load mmc 0 0x00000000 /boot/.verbose then setenv verbosity 7 else setenv verbosity 1 fi if ext4load mmc 0 0x00000000 /boot/.next then # sunxi mainline kernel #------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ setenv bootargs "console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait rootfstype=ext4 cgroup_enable=memory swapaccount=1 sunxi_ve_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_g2d
  7. Well, I don't have a serial console and HDMI doesn't work :-D But booting get's very far, so I assume it's not a bootloader problem except that maybe I have to change another parameter. I have attached all relevant logs -- I have deleted all but the last boot. The times are "jumping", but I guess I tell you nothing new here. Maybe it's just a strange ssh problem. Is it possible to enable telnet?
  8. I want to have a "dual boot" system with Openelec for video and Armbian for the rest :-) The boot files are named different except 'boot.scr'. So the idea is to rename it, so the right one is used and then do a reboot. Not the PC dual boot with a menu, but good enough for me :-D So I copied the files from the /boot folder to an existing FAT partition and copied the rest to a newly created ext4 partition (mmcblk0p3). I modified 'boot.scr' to this: gpio set PL10 gpio set PG11 setenv machid 1029 setenv bootm_boot_mode nonsec if fatload mmc 0 0x00000000 /boot/.verbose then s
  9. This URL also failed for me, but someone else posted a link to an image that works perfect for me on my Opi PC :
  10. Exaclty the same hardware and use case Only that I want to use tvheadend 4.2 (for the moment the beta versions of it). Thanks for sharing! I downloaded it. How do I install it? With dd or similar programs? I renamed it to .img and could see with 7zip that it is only one partition including /boot on it. Normally there are 2 partitions in the image files: a boot partition with FAT and a system partition with ext4.
  11. According to If I understand correctly, the only difference is that PC+ has additional eMMC and WiFi. So a system with vanilla kernel for Opi PC+ should also work on the PC. Or are there other hardware differences? The page states: "serial console only, no HDMI." Does this vanilla system support Ethernet yet, so one can login via ssh after installation? My targeted use would be a tvheadend server (without local video for the moment).
